2 door yukon sliders

I just picked up a 97 yukon gt and am wanting to build some sliders for it. I've done a quite a bit of searching and i think i know how i want to do them but im wondering about how to attach them to the frame. The supports going to the frame will likely be 2x2x1/4 or 3/16 square hss.

Will I be alright just butting it up again the frame and welding it would that take the weight of the truck without tearing the frame?

Would i be better off maybe welding a piece of plate to the end of the tube then welding that to the frame to help distribute the load, or gusset it some how or has anyone bolted theirs on?

Some pics would be awsome just let me know your opinions on this.

A plate with gussets would be much better than just welding the tubing to the frame.

X2, you definitely want a plate, preferably with a gusset.

I'd call you a cunt but you don't have the depth or the warmth.
